This other couple is getting married. They are having a destination wedding. She comes from a wealthy family, but we have been very close friends for years. Me and my bf cannot afford to go. She asked me to be one of her bridesmaids. What do we do?

To a lot of people, destination weddings, especially when they are far away and expensive, are selfish because many people would not be able to come. I think you need to thank her but be honest with her. You shouldn’t go into debt over her wedding. Accessible destination weddings are ok, but when they’re far away, it always limits who can come.
